Inmates Can Now Keep in Touch With Family and Friends Thanks to Securus Video Visitation

Securus Technologies is leading the way in offering the best civil and criminal justice solutions in the United States and beyond. Public safety and incarceration experience have significantly improved thanks to the company’s innovative products and services. Now, Securus has gone a notch higher to introduce video visitation technology which is the best in the corrections industry. The Securus Video Visitation has come to break the barriers of families and friends visiting their loved ones who are in prison. People don’t have to drive for long distances to see their loved ones for a very limited time. Logging into their smartphones, tablets, laptops or PCs is enough for them to connect with inmates even better. The video visitation is similar to Skype but is more affordable. In fact, the video chats used to be cheaper than telephone calls to inmates before the Federal Communications Commission capped the interstate inmate call rates.

Securus Video Visitation has increased the options in which those incarcerated can keep in touch with their family members and friends. Many studies show that the increased contact is beneficial not only to incarcerated individuals but also to their loved ones and the society at large. A constant contact with family members and friends is among the best ways of reducing the likelihood of inmates breaking the law again once they are released from jail, what is technically referred to as recidivism. The Minnesota Department of Corrections carried out a study that found that just one visit reduced recidivism rates by 13 percent for new crimes and 25 percent for technical offenses. More visits that are offered by the video visitation systems is clearly the best way to rehabilitate inmates.

Securus Technologies was founded in 1986 and is based in Dallas. The company also has other regional offices in Allen, Texas; Carrollton, Texas; and Atlanta. For more than 25 years, the company has proved its commitment to serving and connect. It offers the correctional industry exceptional communication, emergency response, biometric analysis, public information, incident management, monitoring, inmate self-service and information products and services. It is no wonder that more than 3,450 law enforcement, corrections and public safety institutions across North America have contracted Securus for their technology solutions. In the process, Securus serves more than 1.2 million prisoners.
